It’s safe to say there were some runaway winners at the Oscars this year, with The Shape of Water winning four Oscars, including best film. Dunkirk won 3, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Darkest Hour, Coco and Blade Runner 2049 won 2. Frances McDormand won Best Actress in a Leading Role, 21 years after winning her first for Best Actress in a Leading Role for Fargo (1997), and pleaded with every female nominee to stand with her in support as she called for greater support for female nominees’ projects. While accepting his first ever Oscar after such an amazing career, Gary Oldman thanked his 98-year-old mother, saying “Thank you for your love and support. Put the kettle on. I’m bringing Oscar home.”

There have been some amazing projects to hit the screens this year, with some being celebrated at the Academy Awards. There are many projects set to turn heads later this year and Stoffel Presents will be here to bring you the details.
